4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a nice frothy head that dissipates quickly.
Aroma: Hops are front and center; citrus and a touch of fruit and spice.
Taste: The bottle claims that the hops will have a "ruinous" effect on your palate, and although there is a lot of hop flavor I didn’t find that it deadened my taste-buds. Lots of citrus, earthy, spicy and floral notes. The malt adds a fruited bread balance,
Texture: Dry and crisp with warming effect of alcohol.
Drinkability: I had this on my want list for some time and I am glad I tried it. I prefer the balance found in the Levitation Ale.
Presentation: Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass.
Aromas of fruit - pineapple more specifically. Pours a hazy straw with a loose head. Taste of grapefruit. Really drinkable. riksal (2) - - JUL 10, 2017 does not count
Bold aroma. Light in color for a double IPA. Very smooth flavor not overpowering. Awesome beer.

If this were the first beer, no others would need to be made. It always reminds me of when I first tasted the nectar of gods, sneaking a sip as a yout. I’ve stopped drinking anything else, crept on a golf outing when we shotgun Jacobs best. vinivini (2586) - Gomel, BELARUS - APR 13, 2017
Can from Stone Berlin at 8.5. Very hoppy tropical aroma. Medium body. Tons of hoppy bitterness on tongue with additional nuts. Heavy astringent bitterness. Still drinkable. Good.Countbeer (6591) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2017

Classic DIPA from can served in a Chouffe glass:
Creamy sticky airy white head. Hazy yellow body.
Nose of sticky hops and it fruits. Quite cliché but oh so nice.
Flavour starts sticky hoppy with hoppy fruit tones, sticky yellow fruit, little floral and light malty.
Into the afgertaste the bitterness grows very well and becomes a strong bitter pattern with some grassy/herbal tints.
Low carbo, creamy oily silky mouthfeel, between medium and fuller bodied but closer to medium... very nice stuff!

Keg Half Pint at White Horse American Beer Festival 2009, Parsons Green, London in July 2009 - Also Bottle - Pale Amber in colour. Mega-Hoppy; piney oily resinous spicy hops. Very Fruity; very citrus-grapefruit and lemon. Malty; solid malt base, caramel. Very bitter citrus fruity and hoppy. Bottle was less extreme than the keg version tasted at The White Horse 2009. Better balanced; malts more noticeable; hops less aggressive. Nice 2IPA! (2009-07) Lowenbrau (4363) - Asturias, SPAIN - DEC 9, 2016

In short: nice robust IPA.
Pours deep gold with frothy off white head. Moderate head retention, some lacing. Tropical fruit, caramel nose. Medium body, average carbonation, little crispy texture. Taste follows the nose. Solid brew.
Pours a clear-ish amber color with a foamy, persistent head. Aroma: tropical fruits, mango, pine. Taste is a bittersweet juice bomb - mango, pineapple, papaya, honey. Heavy body, thick texture, medium carbonation, long bitter finish. Great. brewtalita (341) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 23, 2016
SPicy aroma, aggresive hop profile, bit of garlic.Palate watery, low carbonation. Taste sweetish spicy like your mommas stir-fry!
Very nice. ulrikolsen (576) - DENMARK - NOV 12, 2016

Taste is light malty with biscuit and light bread, slightly fruity, grainy and hoppy with straw, apricot, floral notes, pina and resin.
